  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts,
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cobs of corn husks and silks removed
  • 2 long red chilies
  • 2 zucchini sliced
  • 3 cups cooked couscous
  • 1 1/2 cups cilantro leaves
  • lemon wedge to serve


  • Slice chicken breasts in half horizontally. Place the chicken, cayenne pepper, garlic and 1 tablespoon of oil in a bowl and set aside.
  • Heat a grill or grill pan over high heat. Toss the corn, zucchini and chiles with the remaining oil. Char-grill or grill the corn and the chilies for about 8 minutes, turning, until tender and blackened in parts. Remove from the heat and chop the chile and place in a bowl. Remove the kernels from the corn cob and place in the bowl with the chile. Grill the zucchini for about 2 minutes per side. Add to the corn mixture, along with the couscous and cilantro and toss to combine. Grill the chicken for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until cooked through.
  • Serve the chicken sliced over the couscous salad with a lemon wedge for serving.
